...DISCUSSION...
MEDIUM-RANGE MODEL GUIDANCE CONTINUES TO SUGGEST SLOW-MOVING UPPER
LOW WILL DRIFT ACROSS THE SWRN U.S. INTO THE 4-CORNERS REGION BY
DAY6...PERHAPS SHIFTING INTO THE PLAINS LATER DAYS7-8.  TIMING OF
EJECTING SHORT WAVES INTO THE HIGH PLAINS REGION WILL BE THE PRIMARY
CONCERN AND MODULATOR REGARDING SEVERE RISK ACROSS THIS REGION.
WHILE BOUNDARY-LAYER MOISTURE WILL INITIALLY BE SCANT ACROSS THE
PLAINS...MORE FAVORABLE LOW-LEVEL TRAJECTORIES SHOULD WITH TIME
ALLOW AT LEAST MODIFIED MOISTURE TO ADVANCE NWD SUCH THAT SUFFICIENT
BUOYANCY WILL EXIST ALONG A SHARPENING DRY LINE FOR CONVECTIVE
DEVELOPMENT.  BY DAY5...ADEQUATE SHEAR/INSTABILITY IS EXPECTED TO
RESIDE ACROSS THE HIGH PLAINS FOR SCATTERED SUPERCELLS...IF STRONGER
FLOW TRANSLATES ACROSS THE SRN ROCKIES AS EXPECTED.  TIMING OF THE
UPPER TROUGH WILL DICTATE SEVERE RISKS DOWNSTREAM DURING LATER
PERIODS.  HOWEVER...PREDICTABILITY REMAINS TOO LOW TO WARRANT
ORGANIZED SEVERE PROBABILITIES INTO EARLY NEXT WEEK.
